Bunnahabhain 9 Years Old 2006 10.108 Yin and Yang (60.4%, SMWS, Heavy Toast Medium Char HH, 282 Bottles, 2017)

SMWS Cask 10.108 Yin and Yang

SMWS 10.108 Yin and Yang Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: Definitely young but with some interest, a complexity that seems to be mostly spirit-driven, with lots of shellfish, brine, sweet and smoky influences but also a mineralic character and soapy texture – perhaps an indication of the wood tinkering. Pretty good whisky all in but I suspect it may have been a lot better un-tinkered and matured a little (or a lot) longer. 84/100

Bruichladdich 30 Years Old 1986 Sherry: The Magnificent Seven (44.6%, OB, Rare Casks, 2017)

Bruichladdich 1986 / 30 Sherry: The Magnificent Seven Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: Delicious, really nutty and full of chocolate before moving into steamed fruit pudding soaked with rum or sherry. Very Christmas-like. From memory this is only the second Oloroso-matured and PX finished whisky we have knowingly sampled and both were really on the button for me flavour-wise. 93/100
